Best Lawn Games for the Whole Family

Bond with the family or treat yourself to a fun new pastime. Everybody likes to hit things, whack things, and spike things. Bring your own lawn toys and camping games and set ‘em in your RV patio or a grassy area right here in the park.

Here are a few camping game ideas to get you started:


Throw things! Like Yahtzee, but much bigger. Support a craftsman when you purchase these handmade yard dice.

Kan Jam

Throw more things! Kan Jam is The #1 Outdoor Party Game in America. It’s a tremendously fun and popular competitive team game in the same family as Ultimate Frisbee, Frisbee golf, cornhole, and basketball. You can even play in the dark with Kan Jam Illuminate.

Oh hey…did your doggie steal your Kan Jam disc? He’s looking for exercise too. Take him to our dog park. It’s open!


Slam things! You’ve seen it on Shark Tank. You can play it anywhere, even in your RV. Easy to store. Spikeball is a fun, active, and competitive 2 on 2 outdoor or indoor sports game played on college campuses, tailgates, the lawn, backyard, beach or gym with rules kind of like volleyball. This will really get your heart rate up.


Whack things! Here is a Rally Meister Pickle ball set with 4 sturdy wooden paddles and easy-to-find lime green pickleballs to get you started.


Whack more things! Franklin Sports Classic Croquet set has everything you need for hours of family fun. Contains 6 wooden mallets, 6 balls, and all the stakes and wickets you will ever need. Makes a great Fathers’ Day gift too.
